Giants, LB Rivers agree to one-year deal
March 15, 2013
By The Associated Press
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Linebacker Keith Rivers has signed a new one-year deal with the New York Giants.
Rivers, a former first-round pick of the Cincinnati Bengals, was traded to New York for a fifth-round pick on April 11, 2012. He missed five games with the Giants because of a slow-healing hamstring injury.
Rivers, 27, has never played a full season, and sat out all of 2011 with the Bengals after undergoing wrist surgery.
``Anytime you step on the field you have something to prove. Me? More so,'' Rivers said. ``Obviously, I have to prove I can stay healthy. I haven't necessarily been able to be trusted to stay healthy. Hopefully, taking a big rest this offseason will help me do that.''
Rivers had 44 tackles last season.
